SB 1011 Defeated in Committee

Ishvaku Vashishtha testifies against SB 1011 on behalf of Inner City Law Center

May 4th, 2024 — Last month, Inner City Law Center joined over 100 organizations, advocates, and individuals with lived experience in signing on to oppose SB 1011 — a proposal that would have criminalized homelessness across the state of California. SB 1011 was heard in the California Senate Public Safety Committee on April 16, and it was successfully defeated in committee. ICLC, along with over 70 other organizations and individuals, provided me-too testimony in opposition to the bill. We look forward to working with our legislative partners to advance solutions that do work, like housing and services, while opposing any efforts that discriminate against and criminalize unhoused Californians.
